G22 Sig Sauer .40 S&W 180 gr V Crown gel test and review

    Last week, Sig .40 S&W 180 gr V-Crown didn’t do very well from a short barrel. This week we shoot it through a Glock Model 22 into ClearBallistics gel to assess velocity, penetration, expansion, and weight retention. Performance is still mixed, even with the longer barrel.
